Printed Circuit Board Manufacturing

Written by Admin on . Posted in PCB Manufacturing

Into one side of the manufacturing process goes the design and materials for a project, and depending on the desire of the designer, out the other side of the process is the complete fabricated Printed Circuit Board (PCB)/Assembled Printed Circuit Board, (PCBA)/Finished-product (Box Build).
Between the input and output of the process, the manufacturer is:

  • Using software to check the design for manufacturability (DFM)
  • Fabricating the printed circuit boards
  • Ordering and assembling the components onto the PCBs
  • Possibly wiring and installing the PCBs into the final box assembly

Many manufacturers provide the following services:

  • Quick Turnaround production of printed circuit board fabrication and assembly
  • Prototype and very small run PCB manufacturing
  • Small and medium production runs of PCBs
  • Turnkey assembly
  • Lead-based or lead-free solder
